In 1908, the Ford Model T revolutionized transportation, swiftly becoming the most popular car on the planet. And it was conceived, developed and built right here in Detroit. Today, Henry Ford’s (meticulously restored) first factory, where the “car of the century” was born, is not-to-be-missed museum. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is so full of classic vehicles it looks like a parking lot from 100 years ago. Be sure to visit the “secret experimental room,” where Ford invented the vehicle that made driving popular.
